DofE Silver Practice Expeditions
The Duke of Edinburgh expedition season came to an end before half term with 2 more groups completing their Silver practice expeditions.
These students were Y10s who had not previously completed the bronze award so it was their first experience of an expedition. In late October they not only had to deal with the challenge of dropping temperatures but also with the nights drawing in they had to make sure they had arrived at camp and got their tents up before it got dark.
They all managed this, although there were some having to cook their well earned evening meal with the help of a headtorch! Well done to all involved.
